Shocking Find

By JudgementDay

Filed under: /blogs/browse/t/vehicle/v//p

After a 20+ year absence and any hope of finding my first Fiero back I found the car in a back road used car lot only a few blocks from my work. It has been sitting there for over 2 years waiting for the right person to come along and put it back on the road. Stay tuned, I probably won't be able to resist bringing my baby back home. Body remains untouched original except for the replacement of the rear decklid and aftermarket wheels. Only 125K on the clock and "supposedly" runs and drives.

Maintenance Update

Filed under: /blogs/browse/t/vehicle/v//p

After what appears to be nearly 20 since it last ran I performed some major maintenance on this car and she fired up and seems to run pretty smooth. Need to complete clutch bleeding, brake maintenance and get a new set of tires for the newly polished factory wheels and she might be ready for the road.

Nox

Filed under: /blogs/browse/t/vehicle/v//p

Finally retired the old Nox to used car status at the local Pontiac dealer. She ran up to 167,000 miles without any problems. I planned on running it up past 200,000 miles, but I ran into a trade deal I couldn't pass up.

Fuel Mileage

By JudgementDay

Filed under: /blogs/browse/t/vehicle/v//p

Figured out my overall fuel mileage from the first 100,000 miles on the road and came up with 18.3 MPG. Best yet logged was 2 full tanks back to back at 23 and 1 lonely tank at 24. Haven't yet seen the elusive 25 MPG on the window sticker when new. As of 5-30-07 she sits at about 114,000.
